The Oklahoma State Department of Health is proposing amendments to the Immunization Rules and we need your help!
The proposed changes will strengthen the process for obtaining exemptions for children enrolled in Oklahoma schools or child care centers to include:
The delivery of educational materials from a local health department prior to completion of the exemption form;
Redirect requestors from a school to a local health department to obtain the exemption form; and
Require an exemption form prior to kindergarten and prior to middle school (7th grade).
